Template:Wikia boilerplate

From WikiIndex
Jump to: navigation, search

This template: Wikia boilerplate is a 'boilerplate' template. It is to be used only for Wikia-hosted wiki sites (subsequently branded as 'Fandom powered by Wikia', now branded soley as 'Fandom'). To correctly use this Wikia template, replace WIKINAME in the sample URLs below with its specific Wikia Fandom sub-domain identifier; for example, StarWars.Fandom.com. Please note that non-English language wiki site Fandom URLs have a notable change of URL schema compared to their former Wikia URLs, examples; from De.StarWars.Wikia.com to StarWars.Fandom.com/de/, or from Es.StarWars.Wikia.com to StarWars.Fandom.com/es/, etc. When completed and saved, this specific Wikia boilerplate calls on our default template:Wiki to generate the standard 'infobox' as used on all wiki site articles here on WikiIndex.

When adding or amending a date for the page count statistics update (number of pages - technically, part of template:Size), and / or an update to the published database dump backup file (within template:Wiki), please use the full standardised and internationalised ISO 8601 extended date format as shown: YYYY-MM-DD (standard hyphens and not 'slashes' for date separators).

If or when editing an existing Wikia site article to update it to the new Fandom URL schema, please do not change the wikiFactor URL within its template:Size. The 'Special:PopularPages' was globally disabled on Wikia many years before the rebrand to Fandom, and its newer Fandom URL schema never used popular pages; therefore, retain its former WIKINAME.Wikia.com/wiki/Special:PopularPages (or Special:MostVisitedPages) URL, so that any archived URL might be found and added to the Wikia site article page to verify its wikiFactor (wF).
